Scalpel offers a precise, small weapon system with low collateral damage in urban environments. Scalpel is a spiral development program leveraging the qualified and aircraft-certified paveway II Enhanced Laser Guided Training Round (ELGTR) technology. With its ELGTR infrastructure already in place, Scalpel offers minimal aircraft integration costs, minimal development effort, low technical and schedule risk, and affordable unit cost.
Scalpel can be fitted on F-16, F/A-18, AV-8B, and other domestic and international platforms. Combined with the Lockheed Martin Sniper Targeting Pod or other FLIR systems, Scalpel offers a high-value, low-risk solution for special operations.
